    Feel free to repost the same article if we close a thread. If we close a thread, it's because the posters have wandered too far from the original subject into the wonderland of personal attacks.

    So why not give the personal attackers a vacation instead of just locking down threads after some psychotic hate-monger gets his last word ???

    It's obvious to all who leads the personal attack campaigns here, and such offenders need to be held accountable. If not this place will always be subject to slime and personal insults.

    That's actually a terrific idea. Have a single thread where people can air out their differences, without soiling every other thread. I like it HD.

    I was thinking of the Sticky at the top of the forum, containing the rules.

    1. Make sure the attack is VERY personal, research your target and find the most hurtful burn you can.

    2. Make sure its an attack, and not just a threat.

    etc....

    Would be nice if we could change the Rate Thread to Rate Personal Attack too. Maybe give a prize each month to the best attacks.

    ... should at least be a breath-a-lyzer test or something to weed out the bad drunks ... and retired prison guards should have to change out of their gestapo unis before logging on, too.

    It is interesting that in a thread that makes an effort to stop personal attacks.. that a personal attack takes place.
